# How much is a couple, few and several in terms of approximate value?

Ok, i am having a bit of an arguement about this I think that couple is 2-3 few is 4 or more and several is 7 or more mainly the arguement is about whether couple means 2 or if it means 2 or 3 the other person's arguement is that the definition of couple is a pair or match so it's 2 but i am saying that when you say couple you are giving an approximate answer and if couple meant 2 it isn't approximate and you may as well say 2

What are your thoughts and what do you think of when you hear couple, few or several?

Update:

Ok, it seems some of you aren't reading the question properly it says "in terms of approximate value" that means when i say "oh a couple of years ago" does that mean exactly 2 can't be more can't be less or does it mean it could be more than 2 might have been 3
